There's not that much crime in the area. However, the incidents that occur are robberies. There have been some incidents of vandalism but it is not common. People have started putting up surveillance cameras for their safety. Also, a security guard circles the neighborhood to make sure the area remains safe. Some concerns I have would be the gate at the front of our neighborhood and how it remains open for multiple minutes at a time. This allows people who do not live in the neighborhood to enter the community. I think there should be a gate guard.

The area where I currently reside is a luxurious place that is cool, calm, and collected. With there being a mall across the street from my home makes it safe and convenient to walk across and explore the wonderful venture established. Moreover there is many food restaurants like Red Lobster, Olive Garden, and Dunkin Donuts fairly close by to my pleasure.To sum it all up this area would be my residency when I buy my first home in the future. Yet I would not rank this area compared to others in the U.S because I simply have not visited or experience living in those areas.
I lived in this area for my entire adolescent life, so I didn't know much else apart from it. Growing up in the suburbs definitely has its advantages. For one, everything you need is right at your finger tips. Huge grocery stores, malls, and endless amounts of restaurants are all within a very close proximity. I recently moved off to the big city of New York and more specifically Manhattan. These two places are worlds apart, but I often find myself wishing I could be back in the suburbs. Aside from the prices, the suburbs offers a more "home-y" feel in general.
